PDP, Kogi State has said that the decision of delegates of the APC to elect incumbent Governor Yahaya Bello as the party’s flag bearer for the November 16 governorship polls would make it easy for them to win.
Sharing their reaction to Yahaya Bello’s appointment, via its spokesman, Bode Ogunmola, said the choice of Yahaya “despite his poor performance” will make it simpler for PDP.
The opposition party cited what it described as the “general public resentment against Bello’s administration” as another reason for their upcoming victory in the election.
He said, “It is a well known fact that Governor Bello cannot win any local government, given his poor performance and the way and manner the resources of the state are being massively looted.
“His desperation to return is to save himself from going to prison over looted funds. That was why he had to spend hugely to get strong contenders disqualified.
“If he succeeds in fooling the leadership of his party and the delegates, we are confident that he cannot fool Kogi electorate who are victims of his monumental mis-governance.”
